The liberal stalwart gone. A great jurist.

Over to Trump and Turtle to see how they will handle the vacancy. They could do the right thing, but yeah, nah. plum will be plum.

If it looks like there is a good chance the democrats can take the whitehouse and the senate I think the republicans will be persuaded to wait until after the election. Just read that the tactic the democrats will use is a promise to increase the supreme court to 13 if the republicans don't wait.

I dont see that happening, if it does house and senate would both go Republican midterms (happened to both the last democratic presidents)

Why would the both go republican in the midterms ?

The state of the game is the republicans have a dagger aimed that can not be easily defended against. The democrats are pleading for them to be the bigger men. :)

At least they will be able to use McConnell's statements against him to clearly show by his own words that he is a liar and worse than not caring about them having a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. He actually wants to make sure that they don't.

She had 8 years to retire when Obama was president, her 75th to 83rd years. If she was particularly concerned with being replaced with a liberal judge she should have retired then. Obama had the Presidency, Senate, and Congress and was able to get judges nominated and confirmed.

McConnell doesn't give a fudge about what people think. He's far worse than Trump as he actually understands the damage he's doing to US Democracy and doesn't care.

:lol:

Because history has shown that the last few presidents have lost them in their mid term Obama, Clinton and of course George W in his second term. Biden who if he wins is not going to go for a second term with an unpopular VP pick am sure will lose too in his mid term too

You said they would lose the midterms if they upped the number to 13. Now you seem to be saying they would lose the midterms no matter what they did. i have I got that right ?

:roll: If she really cared she would have retired even earlier like when Clinton was in power. Strong rumour anyway that she was murdered by forces loyal to Trump. Brought special forces in from east Ukraine and boom she's dead. Flight details and all doing the rounds.

It’s likely to be Amy Barrett

Wonder what all the cheerleaders might think about a Sharia Law person being on the Supreme Court.

Should be fun.

I would rather they waited until after the election as well.

Partially because the left is irrational, violent, and needs to be treated with kid gloves.

Consistency is not something we should ask of the Democrats because we need them to evolve.
